Dear Sirs

I write to your safety organisation with a view to improving the Lightning Protection System safety within the UK Construction Industry, as I fervently believe Lighting Protection Systems (LPS) safety is not taken seriously be designers, clients, construction companies, local planning authorities etc within the United Kingdom.

The relevant standard is the BS/EN 62305/2008 and I believe this standard is being willfully and flagrantly abused nationwide in the UK with the full knowledge of the Health and Safety Executive. The HSE in the UK have failed their fiduciary duty of care ref LPS in the UK.

In particular the Lightning Risk Assessment requirements of the BSEN standard are being willfully circumvented at sports stadia, shopping complexes, schools, public buildings, hospitals, windfarms, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you ref this very serious matter.

With thanks

Alan M Dransfield
